Are you a stranger to God
Carried away with your pride?
Tell me sinner, do you ever stop and think?
Are you afraid to die?

Are you afraid?
Are you unsaved?
Are you afraid to die?

Call on Him while he is near
Moments are swift passing by
Will you seek Him while He stile may be found?
Are you afraid to die?

Are you afraid?
Are you unsaved?
Are you afraid to die?

Are you too wicked to cry?
Would you to Gods' bosom fly?
Soon He's comin' like a thief in the night
Are you afraid to die?

Are you afraid?
Are you unsaved?
Are you afraid to die?

Are you afraid?
Are you unsaved?
Are you afraid to die?

    Anyone who neglects to receive jesus as their lord and savior in this life has every reason to be afraid of death. Not so for the true believer. For him/her, death is just a passage, a means of transport to the mansions above. In the words of d. L. Moody, "... If this is death, it is sweet, god is calling me and i must go". Amen.
